    A splendid composition and such rich colors!

  • Thank you Pamela!! Did you read the history? I’m English but lived in Wales since I was ONE!The real prince of Wales was from the house of Llewelyn, Charles is the english Prince of Wales! The Aire to the English throne always takes the title , Prince of Wales. If Charles takes the throne from Elizabeth 11, William will become Prince of Wales!! Complicated eh!! Thanks for the fave!!!
